Another great value box set. does what it says on the tin (with one or two exceptions)

Wild and frantic Rockabilly, Rock and Roll and R&b (that's real R&B, not the stuff masquerading as music today)

usual standard artists, Wanda Jackson, Johnny Burnette, Eddie Cochran, Ray Sharpe, Ray Smith, Little Richard (standards), Mickey Hawks (a couple more than the usual Bip bop Boom, Ronnie Dawson, Ruth Brown (although a strange cut of "mama he treats your daughter mean" very commercial track which I suggest is not the 1953 cut it states to be) bizarre to include some Elvis's 60's output and Cliff Richard(!!!)but hey I'm being picky.

A nice couple of early Otis Redding and James Brown tracks, loads of Little Richard sound-a-likes.
couple of nice johnny otis tracks too.
very strange but interesting version of Hound dog by Frank Motley, a Jazz trumpeter famous for playing two at once!!!!, it claims he wrote it but I think Leiber and Stoller might have something to say!

if you like it frantic you'll love it

No arguing with the value here as you get 10 CDs in a box of recordings which don't cotravene the trade description act.
Naming the biggest names on the sleeve hides the fact that there's plenty of obscurities here and the track details can be found on the BIM BAM website as Amazon are too lazy to put them up here
So who's heard of Mickey Hawks,Billy Lamont,Big Danny Oliver,Julian Herrien & the Tigers,Big Bob,Frank Motley,Rudy Greene,Little Ike and George Young-that's just an example from CD 1
Its like the Ultimate Mix Tape and its only a tenner which would actually cost pounds more to download
Consider also that very little of this music was issued in the U K at the time and its even first time round on CD for over a quarter of what's here.
Its not as one reviewer says "dated" as this is what inspired the Beatles and the Stones and goes on to be recreated by today's rockabilly bands

As the track listing is omitted here, and on the US site, it maybe useful to know that it IS on the German site; http://www.amazon.de/Wild-Frantic-Rocknroll-Elvis-Presley/dp/tracks/B009SF2GZU

It is very dated, but I knew that when I ordered it. It is however very enjoyable, and will be played often.

some iffy tracks but overall a great selection.

most collectors will have most already but it's good to have so many in one bundle.
